I was reading today in Jeremiah. Did you know that when Babylon took over Jerusalem, the paupers that were left in the land were given vineyards?
Bad financial times for a country don’t mean bad financial times for everyone. In this case, it meant better times for some. Upheaval is often no fun, but it is just upheaval. God is still on the throne.
Jeremiah 29 tells us God’s instructions to those in captivity – to enjoy life anyway. The story of Daniel shows us that some really thrived under the circumstances. The key isn’t having everything as we want it – the key is having God on the throne of our heart and letting Him be in charge of today.
I pray that you find God’s joy in today and His peace is constantly in your heart – no matter your circumstances.
